The blue car with the TX plates
has been abandoned for 3 weeks in a row
now, next to Sundance Park, thereby
devaluing Sundance Park into a parking
lot, rather than a City Park.
I have notified Code Enforcement
for the last 3 weeks.
I have not seen Code Enforcement
vehicles go by in days.
The other day we had an emergency
in our neighborhood, where the Fire
Department came with 2 vehicles.
One could not park next to Sundance Park
on Sycamore Street, near the fire
hydrant, as the blue car with the TX
plates was in the way from being
abandoned for 3 weeks now with Code
Enforcement doing nothing.
What a disaster waiting to
Other cars have tried to store
their vehicles near the blue car with
the TX plates recently, too, that you
Code Enforcement can always get
ride of the other cars, but not the blue
car with the TX plates.
We, as neighbors, talk about Code
Enforcement letting certain vehicles
stay illegally parked for weeks on end
next to Sundance Park, while getting
other neighbors to move their cars.
It is because money is changing
hands. This blue car situation is
a repeat of the Mr. Rooter commercial
vehicle, that paid Code Enforcement, for
over 1 year to stay parked on W. Elm
It is the money trickle down
effect all over again with Code
Enforcement, the Chief of Police (you),
and City Council.
When one vehicle is allowed to
stay illegally, while others cannot,
then certain Public Officials "palms are
being greased", obviously, and
favoritism is happening, which is
illegal in our City.
When the houses in our
neighborhood are constantly being
upgraded, and our assessed values going
down, we look to the Public Officials in
Louisville for allowing public
corruption to allow this to
happen in our town.
When we had our house assessed by
Chase Bank in December, 2011, the
assessor told us what a lovely
neighborhood we had, with our nice
streets cleared of commercial type
vehicles, stored cars, nice green park
next door, etc.
But that was then. And this
is now. And our assessed value of
my house has gone down, when we are
constantly putting money for upgrades in
our yard and house. Interesting
This should not be the
case. Again, we, in our
neighborhood, look to the Public
Officials of the City of Louisville for
allowing this to happen on their watch.
According to our
"Open Government & Ethics
Pamphlet 2013" on
ultimately meet the needs of the entire
community—including current and future
generations—and act in the best
interests of the City

property assessed values decline,
because our City Council allows the Code
Enforcement Department, run by the Chief
of Police (you), to neglect its
work/duties by not keeping up our
property values for the next generation,
our descendants, then failure is what is
This ethics code is for our
public employees, too, such as the Code
Enforcement Department and Police Chief
(you), who should be fired for stealing
taxpayer money for their own benefit,
without caring about our property values
going down, by not enforcing our City
Codes for residential parking in our

it states: "It also prohibits acts of
advantage or favoritism..."
By allowing certain vehicles to be
abandoned/stored/unmoved next to
Sundance Park, and having other vehicles
being removed, is
Code Enforcement is breaking
City Ethics laws. Hmmmmm.
The Code Enforcement Department should
be fined for dereliction of duties.
Again, here are our City Laws on
residential parking and "storage" of a
17.20 OFF-STREET PARKING AND
vehicle parking limitations.
residential lots, no more than two motor
vehicles may be parked on any area of the
lot other than within a fully enclosed
structure or on the paved driveway which
is intended for parking or access to the
garage or carport. A motor vehicle which
is parked or stored on an improved surface
adjacent to a paved driveway, or in a rear
yard, a side yard, or a side yard adjacent
to the street shall be counted towards the
limit of two such vehicles. No more than
one such motor vehicle may be an
inoperable vehicle as defined in section
8.16.040.D.1 of this Code.
